The Department of Soil Science welcomes its newest faculty member, Assistant Professor Jingyi Huang.  Dr. Huang, originally from China, completed his master and PhD degrees on applying electromagnetic induction theories in soil and water mapping, monitoring, and management at the University of New South Wales, Australia.  Afterward, he continued his research career as a post-doctoral researcher in the University of Sydney and University of New South Wales, during which he studied the spatial-temporal variations of soil properties at different scales using various proximal and remote sensing technologies and machine learning and data assimilation algorithms. He is looking forward to sharing his ideas and expertise in soil sensing and modeling and collaborating with people in the department and across the university to push the boundary of our understanding of the soil in the water-energy-food nexus. Dr. Huang has an immediate opening for a PhD student in the Soil Sensing and Monitoring Lab. The applicant will have an opportunity to conduct research activities in a multi-discipline environment and will explore the use of various sensing technologies in soil and water resources monitoring and management.  Please contact Dr. Huang if you are interested in the PhD position (jhuang426@wisc.edu; Mobile: +1 (608) 770 6771); Skype jingyi.huang0402 |
